Green NYC: Transportation

Mike Bloomberg made major investments to improve traffic safety, bringing traffic fatalities in New York City to a historic low; to expand transportation options, including building the first new City-funded subway track in decades; and to strengthen existing infrastructure, including $5 billion to ensure the City’s 787 bridges are in the best condition in generations.

  • Traffic fatalities at a historic low.
  • Invested in alternative transportation options: No. 7 train extension, Select Bus Service, 5 Borough Taxi and East River Ferry.
  • After more than $6 billion invested, the city’s 788 bridges were in the best condition in generations in 2013.
